Denogent has some really great wines in the lineup, but Le Croix is always a favorite. So much joy and overt personality, gorgeous fruit, and generosity. All wrapped up in and layered package. Can taste the warmth of this vintage for sure, but I love that about it. Like snacking on rich ripe orchard fruits all day long. I think the oak matches the wines richness well, but this could easily see another phase of beauty with some time to shed a little fat. I love all the fat now though.

Very good but needs time for the oak to better integrate.

Very minerally steely with a touch of oak.

Jumped up Pouilly and it is gorgeous. Hints of reduction but layers of crunchy apple jacks with a strong brace of acid.
